Is Battle Chess for the NES available on any VCs?
Anyway my issue with LotR is
Caved and bought it. Should be here Saturday. Just felt too weird not playing a mainline Final Fantasy at launch after doing so for every numbered entry since VIII. Hopefully I can find *some* enjoyment out of it, but the impressions here are not giving me much confidence.
Reading TVTropes on A Wrinkle in Time and now I'm getting L'Englesian vibes from SMT.Oh man I remember reading A Wrinkle in Time when I was a kid. I don't actually remember too much about the book itself, but I do remember it was the first time I was exposed to the bending space explanation of FTL travel.
I've been playing chess games...
The first one is simple called Knights and involves putting knights (red/blue) on squares of the same colour. Later levels include yellow knights you need to move around to make room. It's pretty challenging, as moving the final piece in place often involves thinking more than a few steps ahead and since it's all knights everywhere, it can be difficult to get a good idea where everything can move.
The second one is Gigachess, which feels like a more advanced version of cat and mouse checkers. Basically, you have up to four pieces (a combination of knights, bishops and rooks) and you have to capture all the pawns. Capturing pawns results in SP, which you can use to buy items, like blocks to block pawns and bombs to blow them up. There's a puzzle mode, which is, well, puzzles, and an endless mode that's like a zombie apocalypse for chess pieces. Pawns attack in waves and you need to survive as long as you can while stopping as many as possible. Shiny pawns are extra strong. They move two spaces and can attack like knights. The game ends when either 10 pawns have breached your defences or all your pieces are dead.
